Although Image United remains six years unfinished (more on that here), Image Comics' flagship superheroes are reuniting in a surprising place for "a rare crossover event" celebrating the company's 25th anniversary - early, no less.

December 28's Shutter #25 by Joe Keatinge and Leila del Luca will have a "Special Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Brunch-Related Crossover Event" as part of their own series' final arc. In addition to the series' characters, scheduled to appear are Spawn, Witchblade, Glory, Savage Dragon, Invincible, and Shadowhawk.

“Image Comics is why I write comics,” said Keatinge, who worked for Image as an employee before transitioning to work as a creator. “After a lot of soul-searching, I felt the best way to express my gratitude on the Image partners' momentous anniversary is to unite our characters over eating eggs and drinking mimosas.”

The publisher itself calls it an "exceptional moment in Image Comics history," and for del Duca its "a dream come true."

"Shutter may not have existed if it weren't for those seven men who left work-for-hire comics to make creator-owned stories," said the artist. "I loved spending time with their characters, incorporating them into our storyline, and having them interact with our own characters, Kate, Alain, and Alarm Cat. I had so much fun!”

Shutter #25 is scheduled to be released December 28.
